Blue and Green Cave around Vis?! Where do I sign?

Stiniva Beach

It was rated top beach in Europe in 2016 and for good reason. Stiniva Bay is located in the southern part of the island of Vis. It is approachable from the sea through a narrow passage after which the bay broadens and ends on a beautiful beach. There is no road leading to the bay and for this reason, it has managed to preserve its natural beauty.

Fort George

When you get to the Vis, it will be hard to miss it. It was called after the English commander of Vis, George Duncan Robertson.On the interior terrace, there are semi-circular gaps for cannons and all the walls are secured by loop-holes.

Tavern “Golub”

This restaurant specializes in meals cooked “under the bell”. A grid with the items to be cooked is put over a bed of charcoal and over this, a weighty metallic dome, the bell, is placed and covered with more hot charcoal. The octopus we had pre-ordered takes four hours to cook. It is a very traditional way to cook. Quiet, only about six tables and good service with full views of the cooking area which is worth watching. They can even arrange a transfer for you.
